About Maria Bucaro

This property is owned and operated by the Center for Reuniting Families, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. On November 15, 1994, the Center for Reuniting Families was incorporated as a non-profit educational organization with the following purpose: To establish and maintain programs providing both teen-oriented and adult assistance to educate and encourage choices that are positive for the individual, family, community and for the greater stewardship of the earth through experiential exercises and to develop a teaching institution disseminating educational material to the public. In addition to our core goals, at Dancing Deer Farm we provide a venue and shared resources to other non profit organizations who address the challenges of creating ecologically and economically vibrant and healthy families and communities. Through these collaborative efforts, CRF is a center for education, research, and demonstration to develop strategies for a sustainable future.

Maria Bucaro purchased this house in 2007

Why Maria Bucaro chose Central Coast

Dancing Deer Farm isn't just another place to stay. With the focus of our non profit work, visitors can quickly feel the healing, calming and supportive energy that infuses this property. We encourage everyone who walks this land to be healthy, happy and respectful, and when that is done, you can't help feeling all of those things within yourself! It is our intention to have all of our guests leave our property feeling better than when they came.

Wonderful experience all around!

  • 5 of 5

I woke up on my wedding day to a deer standing right outside my window. Aside from the bresthtaking views, the best part about this venue is the opportunity to stay on the property with family and friends. We stayed in the cozy Country Haven for 2 nights. This meant that we could take our time both setting up and breaking down after the event (which was important since we DIY'd most everything) AND party long into the night! Maria was so great to work with and answered and encouraged all of my questions. The amphitheatre was lovely and literally needed no decorations in my opinion. The Fawn Hill barn and surrounding picnic tables created an excellent atmosphere for the reception...I loved the twinkle lights, reclaimed bucket lanterns, as well as the awesome moveable bar! We had a fantastic wedding weekend at Dancing Deer Farm!

Fantastic home, ambiance, land and location.

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This 6 bedroom clean and airy home was perfect for our 11 person retreat -- and the property is a treasure. Arriving at Dancing Deer Farm we immediately felt the peace and connection with nature. The owners are wonderful about letting us meander the paths through Dancing Deer and the adjoining 35 acre forest. Hard to believe this is in the middle of the wine country 25 minutes from the ocean when it feels like being in a mountain retreat. Kitchen is big enough to have fun cooking together. We had great conversations in the deep leather couches, then meals, dancing and art in the multi-purpose room. Thank you Dancing Deer Farm for providing such a special place that can be used for so many purposes. Your attention to detail and willingness to do so much to make our stay special is MUCH appreciated. Your are really nice people. I've already re-booked for May!

Perfect for Family Gatherings/Reunions

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect venue for our Thanksgiving celebration and weekend! Perfect for all ages, there are trails for walks, a teepee for drum circle, a labyrinth for meditating, a barn for large dinners, and an amphitheater for jam sessions. Plenty of areas to congregate in and outdoors, and plenty of ways to retreat and find solitude. We enjoyed all of it to the fullest extent. Excellent location in Templeton and gorgeous views everywhere you turn...and yes, there are tons of Dancing Deer!

GORGEOUS LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this home is perfect! Wake up with sweet deer wondering around, acres of beautiful rolling hills! Just lovely! Maria and her staff were amazing too- the house was exactly what we needed and wanted! Clean, open, stocked well, etc. It is also located within walking distance of awesome wineries. A perfect place!

Family Reunion and Wedding Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I eloped for our wedding ceremony, but needed a space for our family to gather and celebrate at a later date. This property was perfect! We rented the entire property (Hacienda, Country House, and Barn) for a long weekend. This smaller house housed all the young people including my husband and I. The house was comfortable and the perfect size for our group. The property is close to wineries, Hearst Castle, downtown Paso Robles and Templeton so guests were able to take day trips and enjoy the area. The 80 acre grounds were enjoyed by all - it was awesome see our guests roaming the property and enjoying the great outdoors. Everyone loved the property and wanted to stay longer! Karen, the property manager, and all other employees were so friendly and helpful. We genuinely loved every minute of our stay! We will definitely be back!

Best stay with a gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I took my 73 year old mother on a road trip and we chose this year because of its close proximity to places we wanted to visit: Cayucos, Cambria, Paso Robles, Big Sur etc. This location was also half way between LA and San Fran and it worked perfectly for us as we were doing the Pacific drive LA to San Fran. We stayed at the Country House and loved every minute of our stay. The Country House is comfortable, clean, spacious, had the most beautiful view from the living area where you can have your meals - we took our meals outside mainly because it was so peaceful and serene we couldn't get enough of the surrounding. I had a chance to explore the surrounding areas, perfect for early morning runs or even outdoor Yoga. We cooked our meals daily as we are vegetarians and so the little farm was perfect for us, Luke grows the tastiest tomatoes in the entire world - seriously!!. Karen who manages the property is so welcoming, she is genuinely nice and easy to talk to - we loved her!! We will definitely be back for another visit in the near future.

With the coast only a 30-minute drive away, you can easily visit the beach for surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, and parasailing in Morro Bay, Cayucos or Cambria. And just north of that, visit the elephant seals and Hearst Castle in San Simeon!

If you are here during the summer months, the Mid State Fair in Paso Robles is always a favorite activity, and easy to get to at only 8 miles away! Head south 30 minutes into San Luis Obispo for more central coast fun, including hiking some of the Seven Sisters of San Luis Obispo - our famous peaks of volcanic remains!

We have hot springs just a few miles away, and on site healing practitioners offering a variety of healing modalities, so if you'd like to ensure your stay is relaxing and rejuvenating, we've got you covered!

And if you like good food and good wine - this is the destination for you! With nearly 200 wineries in the county (two are directly across the street from us!), and a farmer's market almost every day, your taste sensations will be pampered and nourished!

If lake activities are your thing, it is a short drive to several area lakes: Santa Margarita, Nacimiento and San Antonio. Enjoy fishing, camping and boating activities!

Take some time to appreciate our state's history with visits to some of the original California missions - Mission San Antonio de Padua, Mission San Miguel Arcangel, Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa and Mission La Purisima Concepcion are all within driving distance.

Come let us show why some have called this the Happiest Place in America!
